La Nueva Posada is a gorgeously built hotel. Like a large pensione with a pool and situated on a lake. There is a full service restaurant for breakfast and lunch that closes at 6pm. Delicious food and wonderful staff.
The room (304) we had was quite large. The bed was king size. It was ok but very hard. This is common in most hotels we’ve encountered in Mexico. The bathroom has heated marble floors. The shower is huge with great water pressure although we had trouble regulating the water temp consistently so the extra room is nice in case you have to jump out of the way.
The view and balcony were amazing.
Each day we had two fresh bottles of water
No coffee maker or room service but we didn’t expect that.
The Wi-Fi was good but not always reliable. This isn’t the hotel’s fault but notable for the area. I hear the town is getting fiber optics so that’s a boon.
The staff are pleasant and ready to assist in any way they can.
The parrot and cat are fun breakfast companions.
The hotel is quiet and comfortable.
Note: the week of US thanksgiving is also a huge Mexican and Ajijic celebration week. Mexican revolution (nov 20) and subsequent patron saint of Ajijic- St. Andres feast. This is celebrated with REALLY LOUD FIRECRACKERS (cohetes) that will awake you at 5-6am and later throughout the day and evening. This is done to wake people for church and is sanctioned BY the church.
It’s a fun celebration but don’t count on sleeping through this. It’s impossible.
Stayed here for 2 weeks and it was an amazing experience. Staff were wonderful and the restaurant was fabulous. Full breakfast was included each morning. Our terrace room had an amazing view and the pool was excellent. I can’t say enough good things about this boutique hotel which is actually a converted mansion right on the lake. We are going back in a few weeks.
We spent two blissful weeks at this graceful family-run hotel for my 66th birthday, enjoying wonderfully comfortable beds, a lake view breakfast beneath the massive rubber tree in the garden (great Eggs Benedict) and a sweet little swimming pool and courtyard. Although the plaza, shops and market are walkable, the cobblestones can get rough, so we often took a taxi downtown at just 50 pesos.
The staff was professional, friendly and efficient, and by the time we left, we felt like family. We will return for more Old World Charm!
La NP has clean, spacious rooms and a restaurant onsite, making it comfortable to spend time on the property when you need a break from all the local attractions. The location makes Ajijic attractions easy to access on foot. And for venturing to nearby towns, local bus transit is just a few blocks away and easy to use. We stayed at La NP for a week in January, too early for the pool to be in operation. The owners and service staff in the restaurant and at the front desk were always friendly and helpful. Local expats frequent the restaurant. The only drawback was that our room was right above the front desk and lobby so there was a lot of noise that other rooms might not have. And, another noise factor was a regular, high, squealing sound coming from the toilet meant we turned the water off every night in order to sleep. We have no desire to check out other hotels/inns around Ajijic and would eagerly stay here again.
1. Michael, the owner, is one of the most friendly, knowledgeable and kind person my husband and I have met in or out of a business and he speaks perfect English as he is from Canada.
2. The staff were courteous, genuine and all did a great job in both house keeping and the restaurant.
3. The restaurant was great, we ate outside taking in the lake view most mornings (complementary great breakfast) and often for dinner. This trip was also a wonder thanksgiving dinner!
4. Our room was gorgeous, with a patio and full view of the lake and mountains and king size bed. Michael was generous in reinforcing the softer bed for me to help my bad back.
5. Laundry can be handed in at the desk to be washed, dried and folded within a day and for a pittance.
6. Hotel within walking distance of lank, el centro Ajijic, stores, shops and great restaurants.
7. Parking is right next to the hotel.
8. And I almost forgot to say how beautiful and fully Mexican the hotel is - very unique and with a pool, too.
